About This Club

For fans of the GoT TV show or ASoIaF books
  1. What's new in this club
  2. Hello All - I'm going to reread these if anyone would like to join. I'd love to bounce thoughts and opinions off someone other than my animals. ?
  3. I wanted to start a thread on the new series "House of the Dragon". Personally, when HBO announced several spin-offs, my hope was to have a show on the Doom of Valyria and the rise of the Targaryens before they came to Westeros. Much to my dismay, they started with the Long Night. I got enough history on the creation of the White Walkers during the show, so I was rather disappointed on re-telling that story...but yes, I would have watched it anyway :). Needless to say, I wasn't too sad with the cancellation of the show. However, I am excited for "House of the Dragon". Yeah, it doesn't go as far back as I wanted, but, I do think the Dance of the Dragons will make for a great story. Looking forward to more developments on the show, as well as anyone's thoughts/speculation on what is to come.
  4. 12 Emmys wasn’t that bad. So that was the last one. No more GoT next years.
  5. Oh dear lord, Ramin Djawadi deserves an emmy.
  6. It was a great scene. I think you're right about the rushed feeling, it would have used a lot more episodes to explain stuff. It felt like important things were cut, i fekt like jon went to be the true king in the true north. as for the wall though... it seemed like maybe they'd defeated the white walkers before but they came back so maybe they expected a far future return?
  7. https://watchersonthewall.com/game-thrones-lands-number-emmy-nominations-season-8/#more-176047 Who do you think deserves an Emmy? It's obvious that they get more nominations since it was the last season. I have not seen the other shows so I can't compare with them but here are my hopes: * All the technical and visual stuff. * Music!!! * Best drama series (maybe more about the series as a whole and not just this season) * Emilia Clark - I think she was great this season. * Alfie Allen - should have been nominated long ago. * Gwendoline Christie. Maise was great as well. Lena Heady should have gotten a Emmy long ago but didn't have much to do this season. * Carice Van Houten. I don't think they will get the best writing award. lol
  8. I loved episode 1, 2 and 6. There were a few things that didn't work but most of it did. I think that the season had been better with a few more episodes, then some things wouldn't have been so hasty. (Varys turning etc.) I liked where people ended up. Bran becoming king was a surprise but it works. Arya's and Sansa's end were as expected. Jon being sent to a new nights watch was a bit weird (why would there be a nights watch?) but I choose to believe that he went with the free folks and that is a fitting end for him. I think he will be happy there. I loved the small council meeting. It was so funny. I don't care about how Sam can be a maester and having a family or Bronn becoming master of coin. It was such a hilarious scen.
  9. I'm not sure about the book but we can hope :). yeah I thought it was really well done. I enjoyed it except for that one very badly lit episode and small huh moments like.... why would Jon have admitted that or did the dragon talk or what? And... that was really not a lot of rubble on top of the royal couple, or ten feet to either side, but eh, I think that's how they wanted it and how much digging could Tyrion have done alone anyway. people didn't seem to see Dany's descent into madness coming or else thought she didn't deserve the ending she got but I think that was foreshadowed from way back and it couldn't have gone any other way. and all the quibbling about who should have been the rightful king when I think, in the show for certain, the whole series is about how bad inherited royalty can get.
  10. I think the show suffered a bit from not taking the same path to the ending as GRRM plans to. There were certain things that were ridiculously underwhelming (hello, Golden Company?) but overall I was satisfied with the way things ended, and look forward to seeing how George makes it all tie together BECAUSE I DO BELIEVE HE WILL FINISH THE BOOKS. FITE ME. The acting was great. The production values were amazing. The writing was... mostly a'ight. (Bryan Cogman's episode was fantastic.)
  11. I admit there were a few things in the last season that I facepalmed over, but I was really shocked by how much people seem to have hated the series finale. what did y'all think?
